Hello Emma It was such a shame to read your remarks regarding your stay at our holiday park when most of our guests have a great time. The park has just short of 400 families staying each week and the number of poor reviews is less than one per cent. With regard to the entertainment, as you can read in...

We stayed in a small wooden cabin surrounded by trees it was very peaceful,our dog was very happy plenty of good walks for him.There is a bus that runs down to St Ives often. The clubhouse is good with entertainment most of time it was a good break,hope to go again if we can get booked in, it very popular.

Had one of the new platinum caravan lodges. These are awsome and really good quality. The wooded areas are well maintained. Some of the older chalets look very tired and dated and was glad we didn't have one of these. At a cost of £99 for 4 nights including Easter Monday it was a chance of a cheap late availability...

What a fantastic break we have just had. Park isn't strictly in St Ives but about 3 miles out from there in Lelant. Tricky walking to St IVes due to lack of pavements and speeding cars but walk to Carbis Bay 2miles away do-able with care. Started off with a Platinum lodge for 7 nights through Hoseasons booking- wowzers, a...

After reading the review. I was a bit worried about booking for my Easter holiday. We stayed in a bronze chalet, yes the cheapest! Accommodation - small but the bedrooms were bigger than some vans that we have stayed in. Cold, we left the heater on it soon warmed up. Also took warm PJ'S. It was clean, everything worked, no...

I'm not entirely sure where to start?! It was honestly that bad. So, booked our holiday to visit St Ives via the Sun holiday. We understand with doing so it's going to be a "budget holiday" which we really don't mind and have done so before. We arrived and got told our allocation number. We drove along looking at the...

We've not been to a john fowler park for a couple of years as we have been taking our children abroad but after receiving an email offering any grade accommodation for only £99 we jumped at the chance, not only that we had a discount code so we got it cheaper again.
